Fishing Spots from Pringle Bay to Kleinmond, Overberg

This area has much to offer the keen angler. There are many spots, rock and surf, close to each other, so a fishing getaway will have many opportunities, both for a change of scene, and “luck”.

CrayfishThe most common fish found in this area are Steenbras (throughout the year) and kabeljou (in the summer,) with galjoen, elf and snoek in season. A highlight for anglers is the crayfish/rock lobster season in summer (usually November to January) when these delicacies are caught during the limited and strictly-monitored period.

Diving is also popular, and a sea basket of abalone (perlemoen), rock lobster, mussel, octopus and oyster can be caught. Please note a permit is required for harvesting any marine species and restrictions apply. Abalone and Rock Lobster have a closed season.

This is a guide to the fish you could normally expect to catch, the bait that is most preferred by local anglers, and the places you could expect to find them. The best time to fish is on the pushing tide in the early morning or late afternoon. Some species are good to fish at night like Kob, Geelbek and White Steenbras.
